From Grafton to Green Bay
Just as soon as we got back and organized from the Grillin' in Grafton contest, it's time to get loaded up and ready for the next one. We ended up with a 9th place call in Ribs and while we were happy to keep our streak alive, we weren't thrilled with our overall results.
And with no comment cards from the judges, it's hard to evaluate our performance, other than our own take on how things went. But hey, it's BBQ and we'll figure it out.
Our next competition is the Gold Ribbin' BBQ Fest in Green Bay and it's a double header, our first ever.
The contest is at Lambeau Field with a turn-in of all 4 categories on Saturday and then again on Sunday. That means packing twice as many supplies, prepping twice as much meat, back-to-back cooks and hopefully, having twice as much fun.
Oh and while we're at it, let's also do the People's Choice contest on Friday night!?! We'll be cooking a beef tenderloin and turning in 32+ appetizer sized portions for the judges. Why not! The main contest is over the weekend. It's a tough crowd with 60+ teams registered both days. And these are top teams: the teams that get top 5 calls every weekend and plenty of teams with several Grand Championship notches on their belts.
It's sure to be quite an experience and Smoke Freaks is ready to bring it to Green Bay! One thing's for sure, Lambeau is about to get Freaky. So if you're in Green Bay this weekend, stop by to Taste the Freakage!
